What is mind-body coaching?
Mind-body coaching combines both scientific and spiritual approaches to heal the mind from suffering. (Originally, mind-body coaching grew out of the field of mind-body medicine, where pioneers like Dr. John Sarno and Dr. Howard Schubiner demonstrated the power of the mind to heal the body.) My coaching is heavily influenced by the work of Dr. Peter Levine, founder of a trauma healing modality called Somatic Experiencing (SE).
Also, I use my understanding of energy body anatomy to help my highly empathic clients — who tend towards anxiety and hyper-vigilance, and who often absorb other people’s energy — to ground and balance their energy body so that they feel strong, aligned and self-assured.
The ultimate goal of mind-body coaching is learning how access the powerful and wise guidance of your Higher Self — and to trust that guidance and act upon that guidance. This is the antidote to anxiety and to suffering of all kinds.
How? By learning how to work with the mind, body, emotions and intuition.
A Course in Miracles talks about a split mind: one speaks to us with the voice of fear, the other with the voice of love. In mind-body coaching, we learn to tell the difference between the two voices — and we learn how to think with our true (peaceful) mind. As Eckhart Tolle said: If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.
Fear, guilt, anger, sadness etc. can feel so BIG that we numb ourselves with everything from food to work to staying busy all the time. We even bypass emotions through spiritual means like meditation or intense breath work. But emotional suppression is unhealthy and can lead to anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia and more. In coaching, we learn how to make ALL emotions safe and workable. Emotional healing is a skill you can absolutely learn — and it feels like freedom.
The body is an incredible ally on the road to healing the mind. Unfortunately, stress & trauma creates body dissociation. Through coaching, we release past traumas and bring body awareness back “online”. The more grounded (connected to the Earth) and embodied (aware of our “felt-sense”) we are, the easier it is to connect to the guidance of our Higher Self.
Intuition. Guidance. Soul wisdom. THIS is the true goal of mind-body coaching. Learning how access the profound, loving intelligence of your Higher Self — and to trust it — is the antidote to anxiety and to suffering of all kinds. This is the pathway to inner peace. Your guidance is the BEST coach/teacher/therapist/mentor you'll ever have. Let's find out what it has to say.
"The Voice" by Shel Silverstein
There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
"I feel that this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong."
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What's right for you — just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.
